A List of God's Promises and Wisdom for Life - Share your own favorite

This is a list of scriptures that I have started as a link for the series Fragmented at Heart - Part 4. It is intended to be the beginning of a collection of promises from God as well as scriptural wisdom for life that calls us to act, even if that action is waiting. 

Please help grow the list by leaving your favorite "action scripture" in the comments.

Note: I'm working on linking each verse, until then you can use this bible gateway link

God's Promises You Can Act On

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9  

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9

Come close to God, and God will come close to you. - James 4:8a

Take delight in the Lordand he will give you your heart’s desires. Psalm 37:4

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. Luke 6:38

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. John 14:12

Godly Wisdom for Life (honestly we could just quote the book of Proverbs) 
Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. Galatians 6:4 

All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. Proverbs 14:23

A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24  

The path of the virtuous leads away from evil whoever follows that path is safe. Proverbs 16:7

Pride goes before destruction and haughtiness before a fall. Proverbs 16:8 

Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the Lord will be joyful. Proverbs 16:20 

A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. 
Proverbs 15:1 

If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise. If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself, but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding.Fear of the Lord teaches wisdom; humility precedes honor. Proverbs 15:31-33
